Employees experience more appreciation and the company simultaneously benefits from numerous advantages such as…

Increase reach

Increase awareness of your offers and content by leveraging the reach of your referrers across all channels.

Fill vacancies faster

Expand the candidate segment and reach ‘not-yet-seekers’. Significantly increase close rates by valuing the referrer.

Increase employee loyalty

Receive better applications through cultural fit of recommended candidates and significantly higher loyalty through retention via the recommender.

Generate marketing leads

Create attractive offers that appeal to your employees’ interests, and are a pleasure to share with family and friends.

Promote internal engagement

Create a culture that fosters collaboration, appreciation and mutual respect. Reward accomplishments such as internal training, submitting feedback, etc.

Reduce costs

By making recommendations on the existing network, companies can reach suitable candidates more efficiently.

Top Use Case

Receive highly qualified applications in record time

And it’s that simple:


Employee receives relevant job openings

Employees receive relevant vacancies (e.g. by department) on the intranet or by mail. This way, all desired employees can be informed about new tenders.


Employee can easily share vacancies

With the help of a personal sharing link, the advertisements can be shared on a variety of channels (e.g. mail, Whatsapp or the socials). DSGVO compliant and with a unique tracking technology.


Employee receives points

By setting freely selectable parameters for the distribution of points, the company gains maximum flexibility to increase employee motivation. It is possible to award points for sharing information or for successful referrals – the design options are wide.


Employee can redeem points

The company can offer employees various benefits from which they can choose. This gives employees the opportunity to consider their individual needs and wishes, which can increase their satisfaction and loyalty to the company.

Unique sharing technology

yawave also understands who started sharing the ad across multiple touchpoints, and can thus break down who contributed how much to the success. With yawave, partial successes can also be rewarded, such as viewing the ad or sharing it.

    What is the advantage of recommendations in recruiting?

    Employee referrals can fill vacancies faster and at lower cost because:

    • Employee referrals increase the visibility of job postings by leveraging the reach of recommenders across all channels.
    • The candidate segment is expanded as your employees reach out to ‘non-seekers’.
    • You get better quality applications by naturally checking the cultural fit between recommender and candidate.
    • A higher application rate results from the appreciation of the recommendation, which gives the candidate security because the recommender trusts him or her for the job.
    • Significantly higher loyalty is demonstrable due to the bond with the recommender and the better fit.
    • The company also appears innovative
    • Costs for expensive intermediaries and misadjustments are saved.
    Why do I need software for this?
